This is a "2-in-one" recipe... A while back I found a "Shipwreck" recipe on a website and tried it. It was way too dry and we didn't like it much. I played around with it until I found the one we like best. I then had an idea for another variation, tried it out, and we liked it too (hence the "2-way" part of the title) Give them both a try!

Ingredients

Add to Grocery List

  • 4-6
    red potatoes, sliced (peel if desired)
  • 1 lb
    ground beef
  • 1 tsp
    salt
  • 1/2 tsp
    pepper
  • 1
    small onion, chopped
  • 1 can(s)
    15 oz. red beans, undrained
  • 1 can(s)
    15 oz. tomato sauce

How to Make Mom's 2-way Beef Shipwreck

Step-by-Step

  1. Place sliced potates in bottom of a 13 x 9 x 2 casserole dish.
  2. Spread chopped onions over potatoes.
  3. Crumble ground beef over onions and potatoes; sprinkle with salt and pepper. (An easiness hint: I actually don't even measure the salt and pepper, but I have a salt shaker that has a mix of 2/3 salt to 1/3 pepper and I just shake it over the whole top)
  4. Pour beans on top of beef. (Do NOT drain the beans, this is one of the things that keeps the casserole from being too dry)
  5. Pour tomato sauce on top of all.
  6. Cover and bake for 1 hour at 350.
  7. Note: I usually stir the mixture when it comes out, just to make sure the potatoes are tender.
  8. Extra Note (see below for another variation)

    I call them "Red Shipwreck" or "Green Shipwreck" depending on the beans used :) Here is the other...
  9. USE:
    One 15 oz can of green beans (I think I drained them) in place of red beans.

    One 10 oz can cream of mushroom soup, thinned with a little milk in place of the tomato soup.
